Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You're responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the Forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it--details of personal disputes may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums' policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it's understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users' profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses -- Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it's related to a horse for sale, regardless of who's selling it, it doesn't belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions -- Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services -- Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products -- While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements -- Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be "bumped" excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues -- Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators' discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the �alert� button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your �Ignore� list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you'd rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user's membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

    Charlatan Off Derby Trail With Ankle Issue

    Ankle chips to be removed (didn't see which ankle).

    Honor A.P. looked nice taking the SA Derby win over Authentic. Honor A.P. looks like a big colt for sure.

    Not a good day for Baffert.

    Swiss Skydiver looked totally amazing!!

      Interesting that he felt the need to say "It's the first time he's had heat and a little pressure in the ankle..."

        Filling In Ankle Sidelines Charlatan; Will Miss Kentucky Derby

        Wonder if the split drug test comes back a positive if we'll see Charlatan again.

          Maxfield is out of the Kentucky Derby with a condylar fracture.

            LaurieB beat me to it.



            Sounds encouraging that it was non-displaced. Sounded like he might return to racing. If he was my horse, not sure I'd want to but time will tell after surgery and recovery.

            I think this year will be interesting to see who ends up in the gate after the long lead up to the KD with many horses, until mid-March, being trained and pointed toward the KD in early May. I am not a trainer but seems like if I had a promising 2/3YO, my training strategy toward 1 1/4 miles in early May would be very different than 1 1/4 miles in early September...

              Wells Bayou (by Lookin at Lucky) is also off the Derby trail. He has bone bruising.

                Was just listening to TVG. Kurt Hoover made a guesstimate that of the 20 horses currently on the KD eligibility list (well, the top 20 anyway) only 10 of those would be in the KD gate (his initial guesstimate was 5).

                I think less than that given that the KD is no longer the 'start' of the TC, but the middle jewel this year plus 2+ more months to go before the KD gate...

                Hope Tiz the Law makes it in the KD gate.

                  Really bummed about Maxfield.

                  That particular RAN line through Mr. P - Machiavellian - Street Cry - Street Sense seems at first glance to be pretty sturdy. Granted I do not know a whole lot about the female family.

                    I can't believe the amount of general TV coverage on the Belmont Stakes in the last couple of days. Sort of funny: a reflection of the lack of sports to cover in general, I think, rather than any special new interest in horse racing.

                    Belmont spokesperson was trying to build up the excitement. No. One turn mile and one-eighth Derby prep. (Although I am interested in seeing Tiz the Law run.)

                      Who does everyone like today?

                      I was hoping Max Player could be my wise guy pick but I'm not a very good handicapper! 😂

                      I cant wait for this race!

                        Im bummed Maxfield and Charlatan are out. Dont know about Maxfield coming back but Charlatan should depending on actual injury and recovery. Horses aren't suspended and he'd be welcome in any barn.

                        Far as the Belmont. Tiz the Law should win and his connections make a great story....but the odds are overpowering so I’ll bet against him as a single and why not. Go with Modernist. Mind you, dont think he's fast enough and will need to step up but he deserves a shot and a good boxed exacta play with TTL. IMO.

                        Also think Tap it to Win and Sol Volante might be worth consideration at attractive odds.

                          OK, so TVG is apparently not showing the Belmont track races. I think NBC is showing soccer, and nbcsp is doing something else. Anyone know where I can find racing today?

                            FS1 until 2EDT. FS2 from 2-3. Mother ship NBC 3-6.

                            Horse I most want to see on the undercard is Hidden Scroll. Last time out he came out on his nose at the break but recovered sound and kept up easily. As he should have minus the weight of JV ( IIRC) who remained on the ground in front of the gate with the wind knocked out of him. Hopefully, that's his bad luck race for the year.

                              Racing (including the Belmont) starts at 11:45 PDT on NBC... I will be working on fencing all day so have it set to record. Currently America's Day At The Races is on FS1.

                                TVG and NYRA (and TwinSpires) are not playing nice at the moment (both sides IMO have some party to not sharing ADW signals).

                                TVG has been broadcasting Belmont track races on TVG2 and TVG.COM . Even last year when TVG was more into showing all races (including NYRA and TwinSpires), the biggie races like the Belmont Stakes (and KD) were not broadcast live but delayed until after the race was done and IIRC official.

                                        I loved Funny Cide and all of his owners. Good to see them again, and so glad that they have such a nice colt. Glad that Barclay Tagg got a chance at another good colt too. A satisfying race all around.
